A stay-at-home mom is a person who has taken on the full-time task of
raising a child or children. I am not a mother myself, but I would say that
implying that a mom is "home all day eating bon-bons and reading books"
denigrates stay-at-home moms who have one of the hardest, and most
important, jobs I know of.
